Colour Blast Wednesday....Blue

Every so often I choose a colour to "COLOUR BLAST" and today the lucky choice is BLUE. It's possible you might see a single photo or part of a photo that gets you (and me) thinking outside the box....and we could all use a little more of that, right?

Meaning of the Color Blue

Meaning, symbolism and psychology of color: All About the Color BLUEBlue is the overwhelming "favorite color." Blue is seen as trustworthy, dependable and committed. The color of sky and the ocean, blue is perceived as a constant in our lives.

As the collective color of the spirit, it invokes rest and can cause the body to produce chemicals that are calming; however not all blues are serene and sedate. Electric or brilliant blues become dynamic and dramatic, an engaging color that expresses exhilaration.

Some shades or the overuse of blue may come across as cold or uncaring. Blue is the least "gender specific" color, having equal appeal to both men and women.

How the color blue affects us physically and mentally
* Calming and sedate
* Cooling
* Aids intuition
